Overriding the Field Properties of Tables

Access uses the table's property values assigned to the fields as defaults. The form or subform inherits these properties from the table or query on which the form is based. You can override the inherited properties, except for the Validation Rule property, by assigning a different set of values in the Properties window for the control. Properties of controls bound to fields of tables or queries that are inherited from the table's field properties are shown in the following list:

  • Format

  • Decimal Places

  • Status Bar Text

  • Validation Rule

  • Validation Text

  • Default Value

  • Typeface characteristics (such as Font Name, Font Size, Font Bold, Font Italic, and Font Underline)
